On Thursdays, 10:00–12:00 | ETH Zurich, Oerlikon, ONA Fokushalle E7 | Lecture Series.
This lecture series sets up the agenda for widening the disciplinary field of architecture and urbanism from their focus on the city, or the urban in the narrow sense, to wider territorial scales, which correspond to the increasing scales of contemporary urbanization. It discusses the concepts of territory and urbanisation, and their implications for the work of architects and urbanists.
In this framework we have five guest lectures:
03.10. Bárbara Maçães Costa (EPFL): Mapping: Environmental Thresholds
17.10. Georg Aerni and Bas Princen: Nature and Image
